Quit drinking, are my symptoms related?

Posted , 7 users are following.

I quit drinking about 2 weeks ago, and ive honestly felt quite awful. Are my symptoms possibly related to my quitting of alcohol? I only really ever drank beer, probably 4+ a night for many years. Since quitting ive had the following symptoms on and off:

-more frequent urination (not lately)

  • abdominal pains and discomfort in general
  • excess stomach rumbling and gas
  • changed bowel movements
  • some lower back soreness and sides as well

I am going to be visiting the doctor again, just wanted to know in advance if anyone else has ever had the same.

    Hi, please do let your GP know what you are doing ok. If you're in the UK,then the NHS does have support systems in place.....whether you have any local you is a different matter but worth looking into.

    Good luck and I am sorry I can't be of any help with your side effects but I've not started my "journey" yet.

    You took a great step, I would say don't know about these symptoms before. But yes, intake of alcohol in excess is not good for health …… So dear stay away from it & enjoy sober life .
